German-Ghanaian company AmaliTech gGmbH, a licenced Free Zone Enterprise, has launched its second office complex in East Legon in the Greater Accra Region, following the opening of their first facility in Takoradi in the Western Region.
Amalitech Ghana Limited provides ICT services in the Business Processing Outsourcing sector to companies abroad. The company provides training for software developers, software testers, and data scientists.
From the commencement of operations to date, Amalitech’s facilities have created 380 local jobs in Ghana’s technology space, contributing to the economy and responsible growth in the communication industry.
The Deputy Chief Executive Officer (Finance and Administration) of the Ghana Free Zones Authority, Mrs. Kate Abbeo who was a special guest of honour at the launch, commended Amalitech for its impressive growth. She also commended the company for creating 380 meaningful and well-paid jobs for Ghanaian nationals.
Mrs. Abbeo took the opportunity to educate the gathering about opportunities in the free zones. She dispelled the myth that exports are only about tangibles but stressed on value added export services.
The Chief Executive Officer of Amalitech Ghana Limited, Mr. Martin Hecker, revealed that the company is planning to expand to other parts of the country, beginning with Kumasi in the Ashanti Region. He further indicated the company is developing programmes to get people into the tech space and help build their talents, especially the youth. He said this will help the youth build their careers and get decent and well-paid jobs.
Mr. Matthew Darkwa, Director of Operations at Amalitech, indicated that the acquisition of the new facility is a testament to the company’s mission of empowering individuals and businesses to accelerate digital transformation. He revealed the company wasn’t interested only in creating sustainable employment opportunities but also in fostering an environment conducive for collaboration with both global and local clients.
In attendance were officials from the German Embassy, GIZ, and stakeholders from the communication industry.
